I bathed the dog and trimmed her hair. I baked. I deep cleaned the kitchen from the microwave to cabinet doors and all the handles. I vacuumed, even the stairs. I mopped. I picked up and reorganized a couple areas. The house looks amazing!
Now it is time to give myself a gift. I love giving gifts but rarely do I treat myself. Today is a long work day so I think I will treat myself to lunch. Then, I plan on giving myself tomorrow and maybe even Monday off from blogging. I may even take the days off from all media outlets.
I love my gratitude blog but I find that my writing is refreshed after a little break. So while I will continue to write in my personal gratitude journal each day, I am going on a mini blog vacation.
I'm grateful to see how productive I could be over the last few days. I'm grateful for how good it feels to have a clean house. I'm grateful for all the progress made on my daughter's new room. I'm grateful for how well she has been napping and sleeping to let me get things done and get some sleep at night too. I'm so grateful for sleep!
I'm grateful to give gifts. I'm grateful to be on the receiving end this time too. I'm grateful for some time off to recharge and unwind. I'm grateful to get to spend some quality time with my daughter and listen to the hilarious things that are bound to pop out of her mouth.
When was the last time you gave yourself a gift? When was the last time you gave yourself a break from the wide world of media and internet?
May today support us in receiving the gifts we need to feed our soul. May we embrace the balance of giving and receiving. Have a beautiful couple days!
